EMLS invites reviews of recent scholarly works -- critical editions,
commentaries, and theoretical, historical, literary, or interdisciplinary
criticism which centres on sixteenth- or seventeenth-century English or related
literary culture. We also encourage reports of all resources which are relevant
to literary studies of the period, including those available exclusively in
the electronic medium.
Our aim is to publish reviews of a consistently high standard, which are
both engaging and critically fair, written by a broad range of people at different
stages of their academic careers with varied disciplinary backgrounds.
